Before you import media files into KeyFlow Pro, you can select the default option between ‘Copy to library’ or ‘Leave files in place’ in the General tab of Preferences.
- Copy to library: If you’re importing media from a different disk or volume, or if you want to keep a copy of all the media files that have been imported into KeyFlow Pro in the same location (in the KeyFlow Pro library), select this option. (by default)
- Leave files in place: You can select this option to link to the files in their current location rather than copy them into the KeyFlow Pro library. In that case, KeyFlow Pro creates reference files (file aliases) that simply point to the source media files without copying them. There are advantages that enable to use the existing devices as it is.
- Store To: In KeyFlow Pro 1.1.5 or later, you can set source media location for reference files. This option is a part of referenced (Leave files in place) import, so media can be imported (or copied and then indexed) to any location on a connected volume as external media.
